In case you hear in the news that the law that allows military personnel to serve in the Peace Corps was unknown to the entire Peace Corps organization, I just want you to know that that line is
Karen and I knew about this deal over two months ago, and we aren't privy to information PC brass like Vasquez isn't. We're the peons entering this goddamned organization, remember?
Military in the Peace Corps makes Karen and I LESS SAFE.
And I'm not just saying this cuz I'm not a fan of the president of the USA.
Host country nationals already suspect PC volunteers as military or intelligence operatives. This action makes it worse.
Join with me; write your senator. Tell them that Peace Corps needs to maintain the seperation from the military and intelligence communities that Kennedy intended when he created the Peace Corps.
